Denver, August 14, 2017: Futurecom Systems Group, ULC today announced they have taken over the production, support and ongoing development of the Siren and Lights Interface Module (SLIM) sold worldwide exclusively by Motorola Solutions, a leading provider of mission-critical communication solutions and services for public safety and commercial customers.
The SLIM module is a small device that interfaces between third party sirens and the Motorola Solutions APX™ mobile two-way radios. Using SLIM, first responders can control their vehicle’s lights, sirens and public address through their APX mobile radios. The use of SLIM allows for a cleaner and safer vehicle cockpit as well as a faster and more cost effective installation with only one cable between the mobile control head and trunk.

SLIM will be shipping from the Futurecom facility in Q4 2017 and will be sold exclusively through Motorola Solutions worldwide.
Futurecom is showcasing SLIM at the APCO International Conference in Denver, CO Booth #1015 from August 14-15,2017.
